[ ♪ music ♪ ] >> sandy has the campaign scrambling. >> we're keeping an eye on the ocean back here. >> obama: our number one priority is making sure that we're saving lives. >> debris is coming down, and now we're watching a partial collapse. >> and a lot of people are enduring very difficult times. >> water levels rising suddenly. >> very clear on what you're supposed to do. >> this is not a time to be stupid. >> we picked up the-- >> obama: fema personnel working with gover
on economic policy. mitt romney would tell a crowd of iowa supporters and the world how he would lead the country forward into a new era of prosperity and growth. romney spoke today and yes romney did dust off the same five-point economic plan he has been touting for months. the only thing remotely fresh that romney offered was more cries for change wrapped in a series of unrelenting attacks on president obama who apparently bears sole responsibility for everything that has gone wrong in washington the fast four years. >> this is a year of a choice. americans want to see changes. four years ago people voted for a partisan president and washington is in gridlock because of it president obama reminds us that he inherited a terrible economy. it's not what he inherited but with the misguided policies that slowed the recovery and caused millions of americans to endure lengthy poverty. >> eliot: with change in the latest theme for the drive to the white house smith fired back saying, the only ching romney is offering is to take us back to the same failed policies that crashed our economy in
to what romney said during his convention acceptance speech. >> president obama promised to begin to slow the rise of the oceans. [ laughing ] and to heal the planet. my promise is to help you and your family. [ cheering ] >> cenk: unless of course your family is in the middle of hurricane sandy good luck to you. i'm not going to help you at all. they literally think the climate change is a punch line. the planet, it's getting warmer. isn't that funny as your family is in great danger over it. ha ha, ha, ha, yeah, really funny. really appreciate it. who are the people who are putting any of this into doubt in the first place? of course, the republicans. listen to this crap that they pedal out of "daily basis"." >> how do you explain the heat? summer. we have hot weather, get over it. >> that global warming thing is really kicking into high gear, isn't it. >> the issue of global warming has been fortified through substantial number of scientist who is have manipulated data. >> the last year has established as a whole premise of man-made global warming is a hoax. >> the science is bad. >> u
romney a talking point. >> unemployment today is higher than on the day barack obama took office. >> eliot: what he didn't say was that the economy was losing 800,000 jobs a month when obama took office. during his term the economy added millions of jobs. professor at us berkeley goldman school of public policy and author of "beyond outrage: what has gone wrong with our economy and our democracy and how to fix it." hello, mr. secretary. >> hello eliot. >> eliot: there was a massive conspiracy that the economy was picking up steam. do you think the numbers prove there is an accelerating fact that there improvement. >> the reason why unemployment ticked up was because more people are trying to find jobs now, and in that particular survey the bureau of labor statistics only looks at the number of people who are trying to find jobs. when more people are trying to find jobs because they are more optimistic about there being jobs there that means the unemployment rate actually ironically goes up. the real important number is the establishment survey number. that 171,000 new jobs is a m
rising. on the campaign trail, mitt romney encountered a heckler who voiced a widespread theory of what had made the storm so deadly. >> romney: thank you for the help you provided and for the help you're going to provide. [ applause ] >> what about the climate? that's what caused this monster storm. >> eliot: romney didn't have an answer. his silence on the issue of climate change and casting doubt on the science of climate change cost him dearly today. new york's independent mayor mike bloomberg endorsed president obama referring both to hurricane irene last august and sandy this week. bloomberg wrote and i quote "in just 14 months, two hurricanes have forced us to evacuate nakeds, something our city had -- never done before. i want our president to place scientific evidence and risk management above electoral politics." for more, we have on the phone -- what's going on to get to millions of commuters to work tomorrow, i'm joined by phone by metropolitan transportation spokesman aaron donovan. thanks for joini
other day. >> eliot: if key didn't learn it in katrina, we are learning it now. the romney-ryan budget cuts fema 43%. that's simply outrageous. bad, horrendous public policy. >> and those who advocate that say it can be handled by the private sector. >> eliot: they don't flow what they're talking about. congresswoman carolyn maloney my congresswoman, many thanks for joining me tonight. >> great to see you. >> eliot: other local officials from the storms will join us, and new meaning to the republican line we built that. that's next. >> eliot: who built that was the question that framed the election for a month during the convention season. as the republican party tried to mock the sensible and correct argument made by president obama, the government had, in fact, built much of what made our economy tick. from many of the essential pieces of our infrastructure to thethe great public universities that produce ground-breaking technology and funding research and development all of this is what permits and helps our economy to forge ahead. and put aside for the moment that the speakers at t
. here was governor romney during the primary debate saying he doesn't believe we should have fema at the federal level. so i'm a little afraid of what happens if mitt romney gets in charge. as a former fema director, are you afraid? >> here's what will happen. mitt romney will get in charge and he'll realize despite that rhetoric, you still need a fema. here's why you need a fema. because there will be -- look, every disaster is catastrophic to the person that's involved in it. but if we have a true catastrophic disaster where you have literally hundreds of thousands if not millions of people homeless, where you have half or a third of the country without power and i don't mean for five days or ten days but i'm talking about months on end you're going to have to have a federal coordinating agency. that will be fema. but here's the philosophical difference. i think in the meantime, we would be better -- we would be more efficient and we would be more effective if we strengthened local and state responders. local re
pressure. that's from the actual c.e.o.'s. remember mitt romney speaking to them saying if there's one thing you can do to help you can tell their employees if they know what's good for them, they better vote on our side. the c.e.o.'s have complied and sent these threatening emails saying you're going to be fired unless you vote for our guy. that's not all. wait until you get ahold of mar copiopia county, where sheriff joe is. they've been accused of doing an enormous amount of antti latino actions. watch this. >> last week, we heard from a concerned voter in democracy 2012 complaining the wrong election date was written in spanish on her voter i.d. cards. they said it was an isolated accident only 50 people were given the wrong information. >> we found out today book marks were handed out with that same incorrect date, once again written in spanish. >> but it gets better. the english version of the same pamphlet shows the correct date of voting, november 6, the spanish version oopsy happens to say you vote on november 8. what a wild coincidence. in the county considered the most anti-
